SUNSET PARK - A citywide initiative by the Department of Education hopes to tackle bullying head on.

Students from P.S. 24 in Sunset Park took part in a panel where kids shared past experiences with bullying, which officials hope will allow them to pinpoint trouble spots.

City Council Speakers Christine Quinn says the city will evaluate the "Respect for All" week and determine if it'll be a mandatory part of the curriculum every year.
